You Should Know..

Ashley @ Little Miss Momma invited her followers to join her with her latest post, and I thought it would be fun, so here goes! 

Things You Should Know If We're Gonna Be BFFs

I searched pretty far back to try to find a picture of just me, but had a difficult time. So you get a picture of me and Addie.
I have to have the volume of the tv or radio on an even number.
I'm the baby of 5 kids. My siblings range between 17-24 years older than me. Clearly I was an 'oops' (a "happy oops", my mom assures me)
I haaaate cold ketchup.
I have to have a fan blowing in my face when I sleep. Even if it's -34 degrees out.
I need to pair said fan with a blanket. Preferably a comforter. 
If I'm driving alone, my music is turned up loud and I'm singing along at the top of my lungs.
I'm not happy if my cream to coffee ratio isn't at least 50:50.
I love pecans. The first tip I had before finding out that I was pregnant with Addie was sitting at my best friend's kitchen table on Memorial Day digging through a jar of mixed nuts finding all the pecans. 
I could find a reason to cry over any movie. I'm sure of it. I even cried when Charlie Brown didn't get a Valentine. 
I'm kind of fascinated with serial killers. I even have an encyclopedia about them. It makes Keith a little nervous. :)
I love to scrapbook but never seem to find the time. I threw together Aubrey's "first year" scrapbook the weekend before her first birthday party promising myself that I would go back and add more detail. It's still sitting in my scrapbook storage ottoman. The awful part about it is I vowed to do one for each year of my kids' lives. I have a lot of work to do.
I'll spend $20 on an outfit for one of my girls, knowing they'll outgrow it in a week.. but hate to spend that much on a shirt for me.
I've never been to Disney, and can't wait to take the girls in a few years when Addie is old enough to enjoy it. Keith & I were planning on going for our anniversary one year, but then found out we were pregnant with Aubrey.
The beach is my favorite place to be. I'm hoping I'll get to go at least once sans kids this summer so I can relax, boogie board and sunbathe (and maybe have a strawberry daiquiri or two) without worrying about Aubrey drowning ;)
I can't stand the sound of people chewing.
I cry every time I have to get an IV. They were the single worst part of both of my c-sections.
I love to write lists. And if I mess up and have to cross something out, I need to rewrite the whole thing.

Feel free to join in and make your own list and link up!


  1. This is a really cute post. :) Very honest. I love the beach too!

  2. I've known you for 16+ years... and never knew about the serial killer thing. I'm with Keith in the nervousness department lol

    1. If I haven't used any of the tactics I've read about in the encyclopedia on Keith you can rest assured you're safe. :)
